$24M Retirement Community Coming to Sunset Hills

By on August 31, 2016

Senior Lifestyle Corporation, a closely-held national owner, operator and developer of senior housing communities, is targeting a grand opening in early 2017 of The Sheridan at Laumeier Park, the first of several retirement communities it plans to develop in metro St. Louis.

The Sheridan will feature 43 assisted-living apartments plus 41 memory care residences developed specifically to support those with dementia, including Alzheimer’s.  The project, totaling nearly 69,000 square feet of finished space, is emerging from a 3.9-acre site at 12470 Rott Road adjacent to Laumeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills, Mo.

“The Sheridan is unique in that it blends the latest concepts in senior living design with a warm and nurturing environment, all specifically programmed around residents and their families,” said Mark Fontana, executive director.  “It will reflect the consummate level of expert care that has distinguished our family-owned company since its founding 31 years ago.”

Residents will have access to nearly 38,000 square feet of common area including living rooms plus a dining room, entertainment room, fitness center and art studio.  Underground parking, as well as spectacular views, are two features of The Sheridan at Laumeier Park that are hard to come by in other senior housing options.  Additionally, smartly integrated internet technology will make it easy for residents to stay in touch with family and staff.
